‘Star Wars’ Future Films Could Stop Relying On “Same Legacy Story Elements”
Star Wars holds a special place in many of our hearts. The films have a set of characters that fans fell in love with, and writers took this in stride with the newest films. This however, isn’t expected to last.
Each new film, The Force Awakens for example, brings in new characters, for them to build their own legacies. Co-Writer of Rogue One Gary Whitta recently spoke about the legacy that the first parts of the franchise had, and what direction the future films hope to take.
“The next spin-off is ‘Han Solo,’ that’s another familiar character, but I think increasingly you’re going to see…One of the thing things we really want to do at Lucasfilm is create a universe and not keep relying on old legacy characters. We’ve got Rey and Finn and Kylo Ren, they’ve already introduced a new generation of characters. Whatever kind of Star Wars films they’re making 10 or 20 years from now, I don’t think they’re going to be relying on the same legacy story elements as we have in the past.”
While it’s doubtful they’ll neglect the original story, and characters characters all together, it makes sense that they would focus more on the new cast and time. Rey, Finn, and Kylo Ren are well on their way to making their own legacies.
